The Lovereading4Kids comment

Empires will topple, thrones will be won ...and souls will be lost. The mind-blowing sequel to And I Darken, described by Buzzfeed as 'A dark, gritty, and seriously badass epic' is a sweeping Ottoman-inspired historical adventure. Starring the inimitable anti-princess Lada, the dagger-wielding drama of her story is perfect for fans of Sarah J. Maas and Victoria Aveyard.

Our Reader Reviewers loved the first book in The Conqueror's trilogy, And I Darken. Here's what they said - 'Honestly, And I Darken truly is an epic tale - I’m just glad it’s only the first of a trilogy!' and 'I don't even know where to begin with this book other than it is the best book of 2016 so far and possibly my life!'

Synopsis

Now I Rise by Kiersten White

Lada Dracul has no allies and no throne. After failing to seize the crown she believes is hers, Lada is out to punish anyone who dares to cross her. Filled with a white-hot rage, she storms the countryside terrorizing the land. But brute force isn't getting her what she wants. And thinking of Mehmed, the sultan she might have been in love with, brings little comfort to her thorny heart. She left him before he could leave her. Lada needs her brother Radu's subtlety and skill. But Mehmed has sent him to Constantinople as his reluctant spy. Radu longs for his sister's fierce confidence but for the first time in his life, he rejects her unexpected plea for help. Torn between loyalties to faith, to the Ottomans, and to Mehmed, he knows he owes Lada nothing. If she dies, he could never forgive himself, but if he fails in Constantinople, will Mehmed ever forgive him?

Fierce and dark ... A superb offering theyoungfolks.com

Lada - so ugly and mean that readers will adore her - stubbornly rejects gender roles ... and the characters ... benefit from complex motivations and an unconventional love triangle. Addictive intrigue Kirkus
